Projection of Epson’s visual future

Unlike many other museums, the Museum of Siam has never been known as a house of historical artefacts and a dusty collection of vases. With interactive exhibits and an emphasis on learning while playing, the museum is as innovative as it is retrospective.
This makes it an apt host of a unique kind of performance. On the night of Jan 8, Japanese electronics company Epson – through the use of two of its brightest laser projectors, the EB- L25000U combined with ELPU05 lenses – conducted a “projection mapping” on the façade of the museum.
The visual feast was really quite the sight. The walls of the establishment were turned into a canvas as the projectors weaved computer-generated visuals into the architecture, displaying a visual tapestry of Thai culture in an outdoor display.
It was a fascinating visual performance as it is a demonstration of Epson’s ultra-bright projectors. It’s also an indicator of where the company’s projector business is headed: an increasingly bright future.
